      Cadenabbia di Griante Jan 11, 2015 at 5:42 AM

      We are hoping to travel to Lake Como this summer and are looking at the possibility of staying in Griante. Is there enough buzz in the evenings. We do not look for entertainment but like to potter about, perhaps a few shops and of course spend the evening dining but do like a 'buzz' and people watching. Is this typical of this area.

      We would like to understand before making plans to travel for the EXPO in milan : Is that international event will be dealing with the industry of food and other feeding question ? or will it be like the previous 2000 (Hannover) and 1967(Montreal) which mean an international meeting of culture in order to learn about the countries and to hear also their traditional music etc.. That is a big difference and it will be important to know the facts before deciding !

      Are there shuttles that will get me to the Ski basin from the train station in Edolo as well as carried back?
      Any insights into making this little ski stint a fun experience greatly appreciated. Would be even better if there was a ski/bus tour out of Brescia directly to the ski basin but I just haven't been able to find it.

    • Searching for a specifik hotel in Ischia!! Please help me!

      Ischia Jan 7, 2015 at 12:30 PM

      I'm searching for a hotel in the Ischia and I would really appreciate if you could help me find it.

      It's a 4 star hotel/resort when it's full there can be around 400-500 guests at least.

      The hotel is u-shaped and has bungalows in front of the main building, on the other side of a parking space,

      I think it's quite a big complex, when guests are going to stay in one of the bungalows one of the staff will take you to your room in something similar to a golf car.

      It has 5 floors

      It has a spa with emotional showers and jacuzzi baths/thermal baths,

      The hotel has two restaurants for the customers and two bars, one pool bar and one bar inside.

      The hotel is open right now but it is closing this week for 3,5 weeks for maintenance.

      Outisde of the hotel, very close, there is another restaurant that is not with the hotel but many hotel guests go there, it's like a disco bar restaurant/pizzera where people can both eat, drink and dance.

      The hotel has bed and breakfast, half board and full board.

      When guests arrive late in the evening and they have booked HB or FB, they get a cold dinner plate served for them.

      The hotel has glass doors in the entrance and the floor is blue and beige tiles, the reception desk is white,

      The reception area/lobby have a beautiful ceiling and arched roof between the rooms.

      It's a family run hotel and the owners are old over 60 or 70 years old and they still work there.

      It has 24 hours reception service.

      hello again
      My wife and I are excited as it is now about six weeks before we head off to Ravenna. We'll be heading off at different times and staying at different places as she is part of a Dragon Boat Team heading over at the end of August, and I'll be making some side stops before I go watch her paddle.

      My wife will be staying at a hotel in Cesenatico with her team. After the festival, she will break away from her tour group and meet me in Ravenna. What are some of the ways for her to get from Cesenatico to Ravenna? She usually doesn't travel without me, so she is getting a little nervous.

      As I will be staying in Ravenna, what are the ways to get from Ravenna to Stadiana Bacin where the festival is being held. I emailed the tourist bureau and haven't got a response yet. Do people know of the best way for me to get there or are will they have shuttles to take people back and forth.

      cheers

      1. Is this feasible?

      2. As a non-christain, is it still worth it to come and see the mosaics even though most are of a Christain theme?
